earlier i was playing off-season comp on nepal, picked ana because even though i didn’t really want to heal ANOTHER FUCKING 3 DPS TEAM, i;m Tired and work with my skills
we lose the first fight and our junkrat leaves. cool. cool. great. good riddance, really. but y’see, even though we’re in off-season, the empty player slots aren’t filled in comp.
fighting 5v6 isn’t easy even in the best of situations, but forcing that onto your teammates on off-season comp? yeah it’s not as bad as if you did it in ACTUAL comp, but it’s still scummy because you’re wasting everyone else’s goddamn time. we made a genuinely valiant effort, not getting rolled, but still losing first round
2nd round, a lot of back and forth. enemy team’s at 99 fucking percent, we’re not TOO far below that.
then one of them fucking leaves.
in the ensuing 5v5, we win. more back and forth. we’re 2 to 2 points, still 5v5 for the 5th round. and you know what comp my amazing team picks? the dream team to win it all for us?
beautiful, isn’t it?
i assumed at that point we were throwing, but not so hard that i should switch off solo healer. i kind of really just wanted the game to be over because 1. i don’t like healing 3+ dps teams, 2. the fact that we had a leaver so early really does sour things a bit, and 3. FIVE ROUNDS OF KOTH IS ALWAYS TOO DAMN MUCH. YEAH IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME I’VE PLAYED IT, AND IT’S FAR FROM MY LONGEST GAME PLAYED (lasted 18:57, for ppl who like numbers), BUT I NEEDED TO FUCKING PEE
it didn’t really matter; both teams had a shitty comp. anyway. you can probably guess how this turned out.
because a story about a leaver
isn’t complete without a win
